I Asked JJ a couple questions about this hike and if wanted to go with. :o He said yes and I was locked in :) . JJ gave me a head start and I wore myself out trying to make time up the Flatiron. From there he took it easy on me but I still made the peak in 3.5 hours :D . I'll take it. The clouds keep the Sun at bay somewhat and the views were GREAT! We did see more people on the Ridgeline then we ever have. There were 3 groups of 15 comming from Carney and lots of others.
I was wearing down on the way back but the views were still GREAT! JJ wanted to do 5024 but I was beat and my stomach was getting upset with me so I took a break while he did it. He did manage to get me on the Flatiron for a sec. JJ noticed a big group getting ready to head down so we headed down so we didn't get stuck behind them. I mentione maybe making it in 7 hours but just didn't have it in me. JJ made it with a few minutes to spare. I was surprised to see a few Deer towards the bottom of Siphon on the southside even with all the people on trail.
Thanks for the hike and Slurpee JJ. It was a butt- kicker!
